    My office number is forwarded to my cell during the day. I get business calls from all over the SE USA and quite a few west coast calls too. As a result, I have to answer each call.

    Today one call from FL was an absolute spam/junk/wouldn't get the hint call. Dude wouldn't give it a break. I was about to open up my Sirius radio link and came across a show that made the other end of the line fall silent when I cranked it up:

    "Pegging tips with Ronnie the Limo Driver" saved the day

    @adamk has attempted to lower the callers credit card interest rate along with trying to buy homeowners insurance for his firetruck that him and the dogs live in.

    I go through a whole list of different topics when I get these calls. Besides the two above, my favorite has been trying to recruit the spam caller (obvious Indian accent) to become an elephant trainer for my traveling circus. Most people get annoyed with these calls, and rightfully so, but I get excited to see what kind of bull shit I can come up with on the spot. It always ends the same however...they hang up and I'm left laughing. My coworkers seem to like it as well since these conversations are so far fetched.

    Almost didn’t answer a call today because I thought it was a spammer. Glad I answered it.

    Makes them even more aggravating

    They call my body shop all them time I like to mess with to. They call and ask for the owner and I say the owner is tied up right now and they ask when will he be free. and tell them when the cops get here I am robbing the place and hang up the phone. My wife tell me not to do that the cops will show with guns the cops never show up.
    Also I will let them make their presentation then tell them they need to talk to Fred he is in charge of buying and he is not here. They get mad and hang up now they call all the time and ask for Fred who doesn't work here. I had a customer in the other day we were working on his car when a telemarketer call and ask for Fred we gave him the phone it was funny listening to him try to explain to them that he doesn't buy stuff for us and wanted to know how they know he was there for them to call him then.

    I get a ton of those too.I do a lot of CL and always get a bunch of text wanting to send me a check for "your item".I always agree and have them send it to the Sheriff.I tell them I really need the money bad and try to get them to overnight me the money, which they do about half the time.After I give them the address to the sheriffs dept Ill disappear for a few days until they start callin me a theif and threaten to call the cops on me.Then Ill have them Google the name and address they sent it to.That always seems to be the end of it for some reason.

    I got like 3/4 text today wanting to send me a google code to confirm I was real.I told em multiple times I was a martain.

    I got a call telling me I won 300 million dollars if I would just pay him the taxes up front.

    That was a fun call. I dragged it out for over 1 hr while I was driving to a buddies.

    Dude just never got it. I had way to much fun.

    I've had a ton of calls lately from all over. If it happens at work I usually just ignore it. The last time I got to have some fun with one was right after work at a local bar in which I'm a regular at. I wish there was a way I could've recorded it. :lol:

    I answered with "All gay and all night escort service...."

    Went on for a while on speaker phone and eventually a few other patrons caught on and volunteered some background sound effects. Even the Venezuelan bartender got in on it. It was epic.

    I posted a cool story along these lines in another thread.

    Too long to type again. But it was cool.

    Husband uses the Metropolis Il cemetery address with the name of Robert Stroud. Look that name up if you like,bird man of Alcatraz. A very sick man with the way he killed some one.

    Another call I had a while back. I had a buddie come by the shop one day and showed me a gun he just bought and wanted me to shoot it. While I was checking it out I got a call from a telemarketer want to sell me something. I covered the phone ant told my buddie to go along with me I uncovered the phone and told the guy on the phone to hold for a second. I started cursing at my friend and told him I didn't want to buy what he was selling and shot his gun about 5 of 6 time and shouted out I bet you don't sell anybody anything now then went back to the phone and asked what in the hell do you want The guy stuttered for a few seconds and then hung up. My buddie still laughs about that still...….

    When they call and ask for the business owner i say he was killed last night in a car wreck and I'm just answering his phone to tie up loose ends.
